MT. RUSHMORE BROADCASTING, INC. has been fined $17,500 by the FCC for EAS, public file, and STL violations at Hot AC simulcast KRAL-A and KIQZ/RAWLINS, WY.
The licensee blamed a former manager "who was not being truthful" for the EAS violations; the portion of the fine for missing issues/programs lists in the public file was reduced by $2,500 because the file was intact and the manager "simply panicked" and did not know where the file was located. The STL violation involves operation at a location other than the licensed spot.
